Thanks so much Sakura! This is my hardest one yet. She had the best, cutest little personality. Mags I think had become my favorite.

Quality of life. I don't think she'd make any kind of even a decent, let alone full recovery. With as fast as this is moving, I'm not sure what I'd find in the morning if she survives the night. It's gotten this bad in less than 18 hours. Tomorrow it could be to her belly area-yikes! I'm hoping she passes tonight instead of having to wait to go to the vet tomorrow. We both tried & I don't regret a second of it. Even though this is bad, she's been warm, clean, fed & most importantly-loved.

Yes, you've given Mags the ultimate gift, the most any betta can ask for: a loving, clean, warm home. I hope for her sake and yours that she passes peacefully in the night, ending her suffering and sparing you from a very difficult task.

poor fish :( It's so cruel that they are selling baby bettas who need such specific perimeters

Speaking of fry, my 4 fry have started coloring up. And yes, I said 4. Not sure if I already told that to everyone that or not, since it was very unplanned and they where born on the water change day(which I couldn't do) and had to live in that water for a week since you aren't supposed to change it during that time of their life.

Anyway, I'm totally fine with only 4 fry this time. Next time it will be planned and I'll have everything set up properly with perfect water.

Here's some pics

This one has red black tipped fins, it's very light though


and another with red black tipped fins


this is the second smallest, with red fins


and the smallest hasn't yet colored up

Oh they look adorable, Copper! I can even see their little dorsals coming in. :) 4 is a good manageable number, especially since it was unplanned like you said.

Thanks all :) Tough night. At Petco, she was labeled a male VT. I know she's female, but I'll never know the rest (I think PK) because of how bad off she was to begin with.

On a brighter note-Beautiful babies! I've been raising the Petco baby bettas & I've enjoyed seeing them grow and change. Good luck with them :)

Off to check on Mags, do water changes and then bed. Hopefully, she passes tonight & is out of pain. Thanks all & I'll update in the morning.

I'm so sorry about Mags. You've done all you can for her.
